November is traditionally known as the I Am So Thankful Month
Do you have someone special in your life? I like to tell them how thankful I am for them. It's a good idea to send them a card and list of reasons why you're thankful for them and give it to them for Thanksgiving
Now is the time to plan your Thanksgiving menu. it is a good idea to start thinking now about what recipes have worked for your Thanksgiving dinners in the past and what recipes are so a part of your tradition that you wouldn’t think of having Thanksgiving without them.
List the types of foods that you would like to include in your Thanksgiving meal: Appetizers, Main Course, Side Dishes, Bread, Salads, and most importantly, Desserts!! Maybe you already have a favorite sweet potato recipe or maybe you want to find one that would work for your family. Start planning now for a meaningful family dinner they won’t forget
At my house this year I'll be making the Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green been casserole and sweet potatoes. I'll also have some macaroni salad and a veggie tray. My family will be bringing the desserts.
One family tradition that we have at every holiday is filling the punch bowl with Frothy Slosh. It is a mixture of Cranapple juice and ginger ale that is topped off by spoonfuls of sherbet. I usually use orange sherbet at Thanksgiving and green at Christmas. When you mix this together it does get very frothy. All the children and the adults enjoy this fruity and refreshing drink.
These are my Two TERRIFIC things for this Tuesday. My thanksgiving menu and our family tradition.
Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday everyone!
